white fine

Happy Thursday, chic readers! We hope your day is off to a fabulous start. We are talking fences today.  When we bought our house in Beaufort, one of the first things we knew we would have to do is put a white picket fence around the yard.

There’s just something about a fence that not only defines a space but also adds so much charm.

In stacked stone, a fence is organic, neutral and blends in so well with the environment.

A chic stucco fence or a concrete fence is not only pretty but is also practical. Insect resistant and easy to clean, it’s a perfect, long-lasting solution for a beautiful outdoor space that stays that way for years to come. And a lovely vine is the perfect accessory!

For that English cottage or secret garden feel, nothing beats stone–with a charming gate, of course.

And a pretty wall creates a cozy outdoor sitting room and breaks up a large back yard. 


There’s nothing more beautiful than a rambling wooden fence through a farm or estate. 


For creating privacy and only seeing the neighbors when you want to see the neighbors, there is nothing prettier than a hedge. It may take a while to get it right, but the result is so worth it!

Doesn’t a tall hedge create the most ethereal feeling?

And, of course, you can never go wrong with brick. Do you have a fence at your house? What’s your favorite fence or wall material?

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day!
